Like a great woman or man, a great aging life or geriatric care managers is hard to find. Long before you need one you must create an effective job description aka sales pitch – that entices the most talented applicant.
You have to give them reason to work for you and a job description that clearly pinpoints the professional you are you are looking for.
Start with why a gold plated geriatric care manager should want this job. You need to inspire them to apply. Is located in a great city, does it make the candidate feel good? Do you offer a collaborative culture, great benefits? Make your job enticing to the stellar candidate you need to hire. Honey bees are few and far between now. Make your job an enticing flower that will give them the pollen they need to grow as a professional.
Next add desirable personality traits. You need a self-starter, well organized, a multitasker,who is detail oriented, uses both their right and left brain and has personal boundaries. Add anything else you need in the perfect geriatric care manager.
Next list the responsibilities of the job like comprehensive assessment and care planning among them > do not be vague and use clear language. And do not just list requirements- list skills like assessment care planning, facilitating family meetings
Finally add qualifications in clear language and include instructions on how to apply that contain a specific call to action. This serves as a built-in screening process as you will be able to weed out applicants who are not able to follow directions and demonstrate a clear lack of attention to detail.
Good luck recruiting.
